Dispatch from the left coast
Auntie Elise checking in to give an update. There have been many photos taken but I forgot the camera cord again and can't bring myself to buy another replacement. Seriously, I could buy a new camera with all the money I've spent on camera cords while away from home. So, no photos until we get back in a few days. Until then, a short list of the highlights so far.

Answer given by almost four year-old nephew when requested to not get any older: "but I can't stop my grow!"
